? in mexico, the debate is raging on whether to ban bullfighting. >> it is still one of the most controversial past times in the americas. bullfighting has been practiced in mexico since the time of the conquistadores, but its days might now be numbered. last year, a proposed ban in the mexican capital only felt at the final hurdle. this time around, the activists are convinced that the legislation will pass. following a partial ban in countries like peru and ecuador, this, the largest bullring in the world in mexico as potential the next site to be closed down. that is something that these fans and the workers here are desperate to avoid. this has been in the hernandez family for five generations. as they run their eye over a possible praetors, they look for speed, strength, and the instinct to charge. the men are very aware that their livelihood is at stake. >> we take care of these animals, is better than we take care of ourselves. there are economic and cultural questions at stake. bullfighting has existed in mexico for more than 500 years. it strikes me as irrational that as a single stro
you to know that my priorities are mexico's priorities. protecting social security and medicare. tax cuts for the middle class, keeping our promises to our veterans and making college more affordable for everyone. i come home nearly every weekend so i can hold the job fairs to meet with the mexicans and raise my family. i've always fought for the things that matter most to the mexicans and i will continue to do that in the senate. >> moderator: was the first question with the deficit increasing by the second economic recovery, what would you as a u.s. senator do about taxes and what would you do about spending? we will begin with martin. i think what is critical was to take a balanced approach. every single bipartisan group that's gotten together butter it is simpson-bowles. if you look at both sides of the equation and increase revenue and make cuts to existing programs we are going to have to weather some challenging kids in the future because spending is too high but we also have to increase revenues. it's fair to ask people what the upper income levels to shoulder the same respon
is election day. thank you for watching. so long. >> the debate between the candidate for senate and mexico. martin heinrich and heather wilson. this debate is hosted by the sun time and kfox tv. our coverage begins after the opening statements. it is about an hour. they represent more than 60 years of journalism experience. we have a lot of experience on that side of the table. walt is going to start with the first question. >> heather wilson wrote the affordable care act is unconstitutional because of the individual mandate. if not thrown out by the supreme court, it to be repealed or replace. martin heinrich voted for the bill. what should the replacement be? if it is to be kept, what changes should be made? >> i think it is that -- important to understand why it should be repealed and replaced. it was a mistake. it is already costing jobs in the state of new mexico. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight to has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that and increases the cost of health care. we are see
on the southern border with mexico. do you still feel that this is the way to go? >> people said we cannot build a wall. i said, i would get down to the tinker toys and show them. i put together a model and said, this is how we do it. we could build a mile of this per day. this puts aside the argument, that we have 5,500 miles of the great wall of china, but my position is that we do not need 200,000 miles of wall, we just do that until they start going around the end. >> is this a concrete barrier? or a brief explanation? >> when the president ridiculed the wall, he was 600 feet from the fences and the walls and the most down along the border. i would describe this as a kind of concrete system with the foundational trench, and the concrete panels, and if you build the wall up you have to have routes on either side, with the chain-link fence by the border. we are spending $12 billion -- $6 billion per mile. >> talking about immigration is what we're talking about. president obama -- if you join congress which be supportive of this trend continuing? >> the most important thing is to secure the bo
you make reference to the u.s. and mexico and house do you view the effected of things such as transnational criminal organizations and confluence of radical extremists, the movement of iran into venezuela and the fact the we have a large border that is essentially flat. >> in my book talking about mexico because i believe anomaly is shining and the greater middle east crucial to the u.s. destiny but mexico is on the same level and on the same level of importance because latin history is moving north demographically. the average guatemalans is 20. the average mexican is in late 20s. the average american -- much longer populations growing at faster rates and ours and whatever we do with immigration there will be more latin speaking people in our society. donald flynn be wrote in the early part of the 20th century when you have an artificial border where much of the southern border is between a highly developed society and and economically less developed society the border doesn't stay stable but moves in the direction of the less developed society which ultimately finds
key house senate and governor's races from around the country. coming up next, we will go to mexico for debate. and about an hour, united states ohio senate. a little later, first term of the schilling squares off among sherry. and as we look at live pictures and the white house, president obama has received his daily briefing, he continues working on relief efforts for hurricane sandy, about 350,000 people are without power in the metro washington d.c. area. early voting has already been cancelled and the district and in maryland. and extended by an extra day. we are learning the president will stay here in washington tomorrow to monitor the response to the hurricane, to ensure all federal resources continue to be provided. presidents will not take part in campaign even said had been scheduled an ohio tomorrow. he pulled himself off the campaign trail for now, canceling all appearances. though clinton will be campaigning for the president today. his total to hold a rally in minneapolis at the university of minnesota. in other event today in duluth. mitt romney is taking place in st
. new mexico, joseph. hello. caller: this is a perfect segue, the chart she was just showing. obviously new mexico, we have lost a whole industry and construction. which means, that is a lot of entry-level positions, especially coming out of high school. i see so many kids, 19, 20, 21 that are coming out of high school, they cannot even get a part-time job and they are homeless. if we had a construction industry, we had to switch service, instead of new home construction, to stay in business, we had to move into a grudge just to do our work in a storage unit. host: do you own your own home? guest: i do. my mortgage is very low. it is $60,000 or so. that is what i go on it. it started out at maybe $100,000. host: thank you. guest: that is very indicative of the situation. even the we see signs of a rebound in housing, the construction industry is still getting its foot back on the ground. you are seeing younger workers suffer any long-term consequences of what is happening in the economy. even if we do recover in terms of gdp and construction, there are consequences that will continue to
support an increase in the presence of the national guard at the u.s.-mexico border in light of this drug violence? >> this is a very complex issue and it takes cooperation between the united states and mexico. i know that you are aware that there was an agreement between the united states and mexico where we help with technical support for boats and aircraft, to help with the war on drugs and the cartels in mexico. this is something we continue to have to do. a pass so, if the people of texas to not know, look it up, pal passover -- el paso is one of the safest cities in america. this is a great community and a great economic engine for our state. >> i have already stated that we should triple the u.s. border patrol. we have to get serious. the question you raised is an important question. mexico is a great and mighty nation and it is tragic what is happening in mexico. i was visiting with a mexican businessman some time ago who described to me how he received from the drug lords a letter that detailed where every one of his grand kids had been for the past week, minute by minute. this i
with mexico and the civil war was a small club and so grant drank himself out of the army. no one would have thought anything of it except that when the civil war began grant vaulted over dozens of officers senior to himself who took delight in spreading stories of grant's drinking. i tracked accounts of grant's drinking to the extent that i could and discovered on two occasions during the civil war he got drunk to the extent that he got drunk and went to bed and slept off and look up the next morning. he never got drunk at a time when being drunk impaired his ability to perform his responsibilities. he got drunk once during the siege of vicksburg when nothing was happening. he never got drunk when he was president. this is a story that has stuck with him in part because it is a label. you can put on somebody and it is hard to disprove. the part about grand being a butcher is something that even occurred to some of grant's fans during the civil war, the civil war shocked american sensibilities win the war began. no one understood how big the conflict was going to become. how many people woul
ivie and his two fellow border patrol agents shot at six miles north of the u.s.-mexico line. ivie was killed the other two wounded. this is well-known for drug smuggling going on. they were responding to a tripped motion detector early tuesday morning when someone started shooting at them. they say the drug smugglers have the upper hand. >> they have an advantage in many cases, they are there, we are entering an area and they can easily ambush or flank our movements and they flee. >> agent ivie's body was transported to a local funeral home in arizona. an honor guard will stand watch over his body until burial. >> we just stood here in silence, you know, trying to show our respects and give him the respect that he d deserved. >> pay our respects. let the family know we care. >> i'm a little shaky, i'm emotional over this. it really did not need to happen. >> reporter: agent nicholas ivie was only 30 years old. he joined the force in 2008. he leaves behind a wife and two young daughters. as we learn more about this case we'll pass it along. back to you. jenna: rick, thank you. jon:
] >> see the final presidential debate monday live on c-span. watch and engage. next, the new mexico senate debate between martin heinrich and heather wilson. followed by a debate between carry herbert and challenger peter cooke. before president obama and mitt romney meat for the final debate on foreign policy and national security, we will take a look back at three debates from our archives. beginning saturday at 7:00 eastern, from 2004, president george w. bush and senator john carry at the university of miami. followed at 8:30 by ronald reagan and walter mondale in kansas city in the 1984. later george w. -- leader george bush and michael dukakis. u.s. senate candidates martin heinrich and heather wilson square off in their third debate and one of the closest of the country. this race was rated as leaning democratic. we picked this up right after the opening statements. this is at -- this is about an hour. >> we will go ahead and get started with the questions, but first i will introduce our panelists. our first one to the right is the friend is managing editor. next to him is a deputy
proximity to mexico. >> yes, the united states is a virtual island. atlantic, pacific, canadian arctic to the north, just 33 million middle-class canadians to the north living within 100 miles of the u.s. border. but south of the border half of that boarder is artificial and you have a vibrant big society a third the population of the u.s. much, much poorer. there's a big -- the difference in living standards between the u.s. and mexico is arguably the greatest difference of living standards than any two contiguous countries in the world with the exception of north and south korea. off very young population in mexico. average mexican is 25, average americans 37. mention key has a vibrant developing economy but the northern third of it is controlled by criminal drug cartels. so the kind of state mexico has evolved into will have significance to the kind of society the united states vovls into because hat tin history is demographically moving north. reclaiming the. >> rose: and you only have to look at the political conventions to see how it's influencing american politics. >> right, whe
gary johnson. the former republican governor of new mexico talks about his view of the two-party system and obstacles for third-party candidates. from "washington journal," this is 40 minutes. >> host: joining us now is gary johnson, the former governor of new mexico, a republican 1995-2003 who is now the libertarian presidential nominee, and gary johnson, first question. when you look at the major party candidates and this year's cycle, what's missing in the debate and the dialogue? and what do you wring to the table -- what do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your
's felix baumgartner and planning to free fall over new mexico jumping from the strat fear, 120,000 feet and expected to fall faster than the speed of town. his team has been pushing back the time because of the weather. he tried to make the jump on tuesday but was scratched because of the winds. we'll watch to see if felix will go flying. would you go up that high? >> no, and if i was, because i love space, i would go on a space shuttle mission. in fact the space shuttle endeavour is making its way to its new home. it was supposed to reach the science museum last night. they told people to stay inside and get out of the way, the streets were so narrow. the planned route, they didn't do their math right and they had a problem. it's still making its way slowly. they -- i don't like this part. they took down 400 trees to make way. >> but they needed to do that to let it go through the streets. >> i hope they grow back. technicians had to figure out how to maneuver the wings. folks, if you look out your window and see this live, which we're looking at, it is for real and it's on the streets
mexico, we established lottery scholarships which allowed really any graduating high school student from new mexico to go to college with those costs paid. so woths what's the federal role, though, when it comes to education, and what's the primary reason in this country why college division tuition is so high? well, it is because of guaranteed government student loans that because of guaranteed government student loans, no one has the excuse for not going to education. and so because of that, institutions of higher learning, colleges and universities are immune from pricing that if kids would take a harder look at it, gee, i don't think i can afford $15,000 a semester, i think i will just sit this one out. when that happens en masse, i guarantee you, the cost of college tuition will drop dramatically. today that doesn't exist. i can't afford $15,000, yet friends and family will point and say, look, you can get a guaranteed government student loan. that is another one of government's unintended consequences that have college tuition at such a high rate. [applause] >> jill. >> i think it
of mexico. why aren't we doing that? the answer is no one's asked us to. well, i did. it's important. >> moderator: thanks. we're going to move on to another subject, a topic involving immigration, and ross has that question. >> mr. cruz, letting cubans come here illegally, become legal, an opportunity not open to or immigrants from other countries. shamed we extend that to others? should cubans be held differently there? cruz. -- cruz: the situation in that country is different, oppressive, regime that tortures and murders its citizens and the united states, for centuries, has allowed a situation of the people seeking refugee status from political oppression and torture. it's not something for me in the ab straight. my father was imprisoned and tortured by batista and my aunt was imprisoned on tortured by castro. i would love to be part of ending the cuban adjustment agent, and i think we can as soon as we don't have an o prosessive regime in cuba. if there's a regime that respects the rights of the citizens, doesn't persecute them, of course, we should change the rules, but until t
that far away. mission control is in roswell, new mexico. you will be hearing some audio momentarily from them. you can also see him kind of conversing likely with mission control right now. brian todd is watching closely as is chad myers in atlanta. brian joins us from washington. brian spent a good part of last week in roswell and got to know some of the players involved in this. chad with a very great understanding of the science behind all of this this morning, all systems are go. there were some moments because of wind they thought perhaps conditions were not perfect. in the end, looked like perfect conditions for the ascent. chad, let's begin with you. mission control very excited that already one record has been set just by virtue of the fact he met that goal of altitude. >> right. that's above anybody else in a balloon. the two men in that balloon, two separate men didn't make it to earth safe, they died in 1961. so this is not without threat. this is a major issue for felix to get down from there, literally, go the speed of sound awhile in a free fall, and finally land with a par
or telling maine or telling arizona or new mexico any state what they should do. but we have to work in every state and every legislator and oppose top two. in my view, it is a hindrance to true democracy for grassroots americans that don't want to be controled by p.a.c.s. >> and our final speaker on this topic, i know you were a republican as governor of new mexico. gary johnson, your response. >> well, running for governor of new mexico as a republican, i ran completely outside of the political system, completely. and i went and i introduced myself to the republican party two weeks before iran, and they said, you know what? we like you, we like what you have to say. we are completely inclusive. you can go and make your case to all republicans in the state, take part in the debates, take part in the discussions. that's the way politics should be. i was able to make that presentation. i was able to make that case. by the way, the republican party chairman at that time said, you can do all this stuff, but you just need to know that you will never get elected because it is not possible to get e

more mention this week in the debate than all of japan, mexico, or europe? >>> first, my take. the international monetary fund's latest world economic outlook makes for gloomy roading. growth projections have been revised downward almost everywhere, especially in europe and the big emerging markets like china. yet when looking out over the next four years, coincidentally the next presidential term, the imf projects that the united states will be the strongest of the world's rich economies. u.s. growth is forecast to average 3%, much stronger than that was germany or france, at 1.2%, or even canada at 2.3%. increasingly the evidence suggests that the united states has come out of the financial crisis of 2008 in better shape than its peers because of the actions of its government. perhaps the most important cause of america's relative health is the federal reserve. ben bernanke understood the depths of the problem early and responded energetically and creatively. the clearest vindication of his actions has been that the european central bank after charting an opposite course for
you're talking about the gulf of mexico, you're talking about colorado, it's harder. this is an intentional slowdown. the gulf of mexico, which has been one of the most prolific sources of oil and natural gas is still at a lower level of activity than it was prior to the bp spill. now that was regretable, but safeguards are in place right now. so that's not going to happen again. this administration has been trying to get rid of coal-fired generation. they don't like oil and gas generation. and they just assume we would be riding around on horses and buggies. melissa: or wind powered cars. >> that's right. melissa: liz, let me ask you. another thing this debate about federal land versus private land. we went back and did the fact-checking. turns out once again from the department of energy, 96% of the increase since 2007, in production, took place on nonfederal lands. look at that. you can see there. >> private land. >> absolutely. melissa --. melissa: hang on, let liz get in there. go ahead, liz. >> what we're talking about essentially the difference between drillin
.s. and mexico. we're talking about tomatoes and maybe sour grapes as well. the it's subject of our deep dive today. last week, the obama administration announced it favored canceling a 16-year-old $3.5 billion tomato trade deal with mexico. the deal encourages imports and has kept tomato prices low. but florida growers say they're so low they can't catch up. the numbers show mexican tomato sales have quadruple since 2000 while florida has seen its cut shrink dramatically. after a flurry of letters from lawmakers, the commerce department decided to repd the trade agreement be scrapped. mexico growers were stunned, upset they hadn't been granted a meeting until after the decision. why did the decision get rushed? presidential politic, the influence of those florida growers might have played just a small role. michael isakoff is nbc's national investigative correspondent. it's an election year and hearing about issues like this, oh, favoritism of this front for florida. favoritism on that front for ohio. it shouldn't come as a shock and yet, we see it play out every year. four years, excuse me.

of the damage from fast and furious. botched atf operation that allowed guns to go across the border to mexico with the intent of tracking them to mexican drug cartels. a painstaking investigative report. it found many of those guns from the u.s. were, indeed, used in murders, kidnappings and at least two massacres across the border. worry joined by one of the reporters covering this for univision. so nice to see you today, sir. thanks for coming by. what did you find? >> well, we found a number of things. i guess what you mentioned already was we found that there is a strong suspicion that some of these weapons from fast and furious operation were used in the 2010 massacre, basically a birthday party where a lot of young teenagers in the city were partaking of a birthday party and hitmen from a rival cartel showed up and killed more than a dozen teenagers. and so there's a strong suspicion that guns from fast and furious were used in that massacre. >> starting with your investigation of that massacre at the birthday party, trying to track three guns used by the assassins there, you were able
moll i was interested to see as well here is what they didn't mention, they didn't mention mexico and the drug crisis there, the drug wars going on and the euro crisis or anything going on in europe, they didn't mention india where probably a lot of, a lot more american jobs are being outsourced there than many other places and mentioned no sub saharan country in africa and didn't mention korea, north korea has a program and sanction that ised are up in the air storks much time was spent on israel, secondarily, some time spent on afghanistan and so much time talking about nation building at home that the pivot almost obscured the rest of the debate for long, long stretches, it was remarkable in that way. i know you can't talk about everything and every debate, but some of the things that didn't get talk about were kind of noticeable. >> rose: what did you think -- >> can i echo that? >> quickly. >> i think particularly mexico and europe, because these are domestic issues, these are affecting the -- europe is affecting our economy like nobody's business, and mexico if you live in t
